Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Just completed installation and activation this morning. The test run and explanations/directions from the installer were excellent. I hope I'll never need it but I know I have a product that will get me through any power outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hunt Electric crew were great! Hunt electric crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely meticulous! Each one of the three, Heath, Tom, and Todd thoroughly explained everything that they were doing and asked us several times if we had any questions! I highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Well Spent for Peace of Mind! I originally considered 26 kW whole-house generator, but I settled for 10 kW unit due to location of natural gas meter compared to optimal location for generator based upon recommendation of independent installer. Larger generator would have required 150+ feet of 2" gas pipe — 10 kW unit easily connected to existing 1" gas line. I was able to service everything in 2400 sq ft home other than washer, electric dryer, electric range, and central air conditioning compressor from included 16 circuit automatic transfer switch. Power restored in 30-45 seconds after simulated outage (flip 100 amp breaker in main box feeding transfer switch). I appreciate the fact that transfer switch waits for power to stabilize after utility power comes back on before switching back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac 26kw I have been wanting a home standby generator for years. We live in the country so when the power goes out it can be out for quite awhile. This is the best money we have ever spent. Works like a charm and so much quieter than the gasoline generator we used for years. No longer have to go out and start or fill up the tank. So convenient and makes life so much easier. Easy to connect to the Wi-Fi, download app and you are good to go Definitely would recommend. Do yourself a favor and get one you won’t regret it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Had to wait 7 months to get it but now am happy that we have it and the peace of mind we won’t ever be in the same situation we were in 2 years ago with 3 days of no electricity or heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv the way you can connect by phone Can’t say enough about this was the best investment I’ve done given my peace of mind of always having power. I live out in a rule area, and we lose power quite often deer in the winter and some times it’s a few hours and there was a time when we had no power for 5 days and not able to run the well and getting down in the 20s pipes freeze up. So now I live with peace of mind
